Henry Beston Society

Henry Beston Society

The Henry Beston Society’s mission statement states that its goal “is to honor Henry Beston by stimulating interest in and promoting education about his life, works and philosophy — with emphasis on his time spent on Cape Cod in Massachusetts — and his place in his world and ours, by coordinating research on his life and writings, by acting as an archive for material relevant to Henry Beston and by advocating for the preservation of the memory and historical importance of The Outermost House.”

The Beston Society, an all-volunteer organization, has partnered with several other Cape Cod organizations for lectures, performances and exhibits, published literature, is producing a documentary film, has long-range plans to open a museum, complete with a replica of Beston’s “Fo’castle,” and has a large archival collection of material related to Henry Beston and The Outermost House.

  1. I would like to inquire regarding copyrights. I would like to design/create a broadside with Beston’s famous quote: “We need another and wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals…etc.”

    The plan would be to market it to vets and other animal lovers, with proceeds being divided.

    Please contact me to discuss or answer this email.
    Thank so much, in advance.
